Strawberry Flaxseed smoothie

This is going to be a short and sweet post about Flax seeds. I use them regularly and the most common way for me to use them is either in my oatmeal or in a smoothie. I don’t find them very appetizing in any other form, so I just stay with my two choices of their use. This strawberry flax seed smoothie can be made with frozen strawberries as well.

This is one of the most ancient plants known to humans and there is some evidence that flax cultivation may have started somewhere during the Neolithic Era. In addition to flax seeds supporting digestive health, cardiovascular health, antioxidant benefits etc, it also has many other interesting uses dating back to about 3000 BC.

  1. Flax seeds turn me off too. This looks wonderful, should give it a try.

     
  2. I’m with you. I have a really hard time getting past the flavor of the flax. Your recipe sounds so delicious that I’m join to try it and see if it will work as a new way for me to get past the flavor.

     
  3. Have to try this. Can I substitute Almond milk with normal milk?
